My youngest daughter managed to get some tickets for a historic race day at Silverstone. She also bought me a lovely cooked breakfast in nearby Brackley to give the perfect start to the day. After breakfast we travelled the few miles to the Silverstone circuit where they had held the F1 Grand Prix just two weeks previously.

The start/ finish straight

Historic F1 cars in the pits

This Austin A35 was in the same pit as the F1 cars

Paint your car sir ?

The pre race assembly area

Admiring one of the many older racing cars

My daughter would love to own one of these

I would not mind an AC Cobra

Wheeling a JPS down to the start area

Busy pit lane

Entering the final straight

There must have been thousands of classic and enthusiasts cars at the event. These were Lotus seven's.
